Music Career

In 2000, Christina Milian performed vocals on Ja Rule's song Between Me and You from his album Rule 3:36. The song became a hit building her reputation as a singer. She also co-wrote and provided extensive backing vocals for the track "Play" for Jennifer Lopez's 2001 album J. Lo which became another big hit, and co-wrote "Same Ol' Same Ol", the first single from girl group PYT's album Down With Me.

In 2001, Christina Milian released her first solo single, "AM To PM", off her self-titled debut album. It became a worldwide hit reaching the top 5 in the UK and Denmark, top 10 in the Netherlands, and top 40 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 and in Australia. The success of "AM To PM" sparked the international release of the Christina Milian album, although not in the U.S. The second single "When You Look At Me" was another international hit reaching the top 5 in the UK, Netherlands, and Ireland and making the top 40 in Denmark, Australia, and France.The third single Get Away had a video but wasen't released. She was also featured on the track "It's All Gravy", a duet with Romeo of the garage group So Solid Crew. It was another UK top ten hit single in 2002. She also wrote and sang the theme song for the Disney series Kim Possible, "Call Me Beep Me" later that year.

In 2003, Christina Milian recorded songs for her first U.S. album, It's About Time, which is a reference to how long it had taken for one of her albums to be released in the U.S. The first single, "Dip It Low", was written by Polli Paul, who has also written songs for the Black Eyed Peas. The first single reached #1 on a world composite dance chart (compiled on data from the U.S., UK, Germany, Japan, Italy, and Australia), #2 in the UK, #5 in the U.S., and the top 40 in Australia. The second single, "Whatever U Want", features Joe Budden and once again reached the top 10 in the UK as well as charting on the Billboard Hot 100. Controversy occurred when Christina Milian changed her look when the album was released. Many people saw it as her trying to look more like Beyoncé Knowles who had a similar look. All of this has been looked at as a coincedence by Christina Milian.

Personal Life

In the summer of 2005, Christina Milian broke up with actor Nick Cannon after being together for nearly two & a half years. In an interview with Angie Martinez, she spoke about how she found out about Cannon cheating on her. Apparently while she was away filming a movie in Romania, she attempted to log in to his T-Mobile.com account by entering in random passwords. After lucking out with one of the passwords, she was able to read all of the messages he sent out and received to and from other women. When she returned back to the states, she decided to play it cool before hitting him with the news that she knew he was cheating.

Weeks after their break up, Christina Milian was spotted with actor Eric West during New York's Olympus Fashion Week leading to many claims that the two are dating. Eric confirmed on American radio station Y100 that the two are just friends. The New York Daily News claims she is now dating hip-hop producer Dre.
